LandlordsRent offers landlords, letting agents and property managers an affordable, user-friendly, small business Direct Debit scheme for rent collection.  This differs from a standing order because with Direct Debit you are in control of the rent collection and payments rather than the tenant. This makes it significantly simpler to manage things like rent increases and collection of permitted fees.  NSP Resources uses this method for all our rent collections.

Getting rent paid direct when your Universal Credit tenant goes into arrears (or is vulnerable) can be a major help in protecting the tenancy longer term. In some circumstances UC will even make deductions from the tenants benefits and send them direct to the landlord to deal with the arrears.  We find that most tenants are extremely grateful to have this arrangement put in place; it protects their home and helps them with budgeting properly. The form for applying for this can be a little hard to find so here is a copy to download! uc47-universal-credit-rent-arrears-form

This is NSP Resources standard move in Inventory. I adapt it for each property, changing the number of bedrooms for instance. For periodic inspections I add a second column and check condition against the previous notes; for move out I check against the move in one. I also add photographs – some general condition shots and focused ones of any flaws. Inventory move in house

Shared housing tends to run more harmoniously if all residents are considerate. NSP Resources created this simple “House Rules” document with a group of tenants many years ago and every tenant in an HMO or shared accommodation is asked to sign it as part of their AST. We also display a copy on the communal area noticeboard. Rules of the House to go with AST
